10 April 2007 Virtualization hurdles
Time to comment on old news J
Infoworld had an article that cites a study commissioned by Computer Associates, which says that 44 percent of all virtualization deployments are not successful or cannot be assessed. It is noteworthy that 71 percent of the respondents also said that they deployed more than one server virtualization technology. And, aside from things like hardware domains, there are only three – VMware, Virtuozzo/OpenVZ and Xen. I’d love to have people who use both Virtuozzo and VMware share their experiences here.
These numbers tell you that many companies jumped on the virtualization bandwagon without fully understanding the consequences, and without trying to estimate ROI. And now, they fail to recognize progress or they don’t fell like they gained enough in return. And, according to this Virtual Strategy Magazine article, 36 percent of their readers are interested in hearing more about VMware alternatives. Well, Virtuozzo is a fine alternative and we even have an on-line ROI calculator to help you make a very rough initial estimate J

Virtuozzo and AMD Virtualization Link
Does anyone know how well these work together? Do they support each other?

Re: Virtuozzo and AMD Virtualization Link
OS vortualization does not require hardware assistance. Virtuozzo currently does not use virtualization features of neither Intel nor AMD processors, hence is 100% compatible wit them.

Multiple hypervisor virtualization environment Link
We have customers who have experimented with multiple virtualization solutions in a single environment -- without much success. Can you give examples of cases where this has been done, for example running VMware and Hyper-V on the same server and storage hardware in a production environment?

Also, if Virtuozzo/OpenVZ can do this (work with multiple virtualization solutions), that alone would be a motivation for some of our customers to buy this -- just to enable integration across those other solutions.
